Do I need a refresher if my last dive was years ago?

While we offer a refresher with fun dive for divers who would like to regain confidence before heading into the ocean. It’s sometimes better for divers who haven’t dived for a long time to go slow. There’s no need to go over the Open Water course again since you can choose to do a pool refresher!

A refresher in the swimming pool (pool refresher) is ideal for most Open Water divers who rarely dive throughout the years. It allows you to slowly remaster the fundamental scuba skills in a perfectly calm environment without any distractions. We strongly recommend a pool refresher for anyone who hasn’t dived for more than 1 year and has only a few logged dives.

You also need to bring a proof of diving certification with you either a physical or electronic version. The minimum requirement for Koh Tao is an Open Water certification. Unless you are a PADI-certified diver, we can look you up in the database.

If you’d like to dive after the session, you are able to book an additional fun diving trip. However, if you do not have a certification, you can always explore the site by doing a Discover Scuba Diving. Our highly experienced instructor will be with you at all times underwater.
